Huawei has introduced the MatePad 5G that slots itself in between the flagship MatePad Pro 5G and the MatePad.

Powering the MatePad 5G is a Kirin 820 chipset which brings in a 5G modem and Wi-Fi 6 support. The Kirin 820 has four Cortex-A76 and a Mali-G57 MP6 GPU. Coupled with the chipset are 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage which is expandable via microSD card.

The new MatePad is compatible with the keyboard cover and the M-Pencil. It also runs on EMUI 10.1 on top of Android 10.
